BUSINESSES are being offered a series of free seminars to equip companies with the tools they need to thrive in the digital era.

The Superfast Business service which is being delivered by Business West will help businesses throughout South Gloucestershire.

Superfast Business is running three free ‘express’ events this autumn, starting on Thursday, September 4, this year.

The two hour long events, for small to medium sized companies, will explain how firms can use technology to save time, increase revenue and reach wider audiences.

Phil Smith, Managing Director of Business West, said: “Businesses need to adapt in order to succeed in today’s digital era. Digital technology can enable businesses to operate faster, cheaper and offer a better service to their clients.

“We recognise that this is new ground for many businesses and that fresh skills and knowledge are needed to help them reap the rewards from digital technology.

“We have identified the key areas where businesses need support and designed our event programme around these themes.

“The Superfast Business events will give South Gloucestershire businesses the tools to become ‘digitally able’ – to market themselves, sell, communicate, collaborate and measure their success.”
